Given that my wife technically owns the software (it was built for her business), can I work for her for ‘free’ and generate income from the software for her shop (until I quit my job and do this full time)?

What type of software is it? Software isn’t always owned by the end user and sometimes it is licenced through a vendor for you to use.

Eg. Office 365 remains owned by Microsoft and the end user is just a licensee.

You really need to check to ensure that you can legally sell this software, just because you paid for it doesn’t mean you own the rights to redistribute it.

You can get into a lot of legal trouble if you resell software that you only hold a licence to use it.
